Niki Ashton to Raise Concerns When Parliament Sits in September

With the recent announcements of businesses closing in The Pas, Churchill Keewatinook Aski NDP MP Niki Ashton will be looking for solutions. Ashton says she will be calling on the federal government for help. "I'll be back in parliament September 19th and this is going to be top of mind. Sitting in parliament, we're all in the same room, so you can head straight over, there's nowhere for anybody to go. I'll be heading directly to Key Ministers in person to say, hey look it, you know, we reached out to you, but this is now the time to act."  Ashton also said we have an invaluable resource in this part of the country, some of the best harvesting territory in the country. Ashton says she’s spoken with employees of Tolko, Town of The Pas Council and the Opaskwayak Cree Nation about continuing to find solutions for our area.
